Once again the criminal medical industry maims fat folks. Even if you don't have high cholesterol the medical industry thugs will put you on statin drugs. Like most prescription poisons statin drugs do more have than good. Greedy doctors just don't care about anyone.
While the over prescribing of statin drugs to fat people is the issue here. Normal sized people are not exempt from deadly pharmaceutical poisons either.
If your doctor want to put you on a statin drug don't let him until you have had the proper lab work done and if conservative safe and natural methods have failed like fish oils and eating less fried food... no fuck that fried food is delicious.
